I have worked with a number of clients not to help them “cure” tinnitus but to help them notice tinnitus significantly less. Tinnitus can literally drive people to take extreme action. It can feel very isolating and annoying.
How to treat Tinnitus
Treatment lies in our ability to notice things less – such as when we are watching sport or reading a good book or watching a great film. Simply put: there are many times when we simply forget to notice the tinnitus. The opposite is also true that when we notice it we can easily ramp it up to a very bothersome level.
A recent client had not one – but two noises going on at the same time. I helped her learn how to reduce the noise of the tinnitus and eventually to forget about it most of the time.
It is like your neighbour who mows the lawn on every Sunday at 8am on the dot – do you notice it but ignore it and know that he will soon be at the other end of the lawn and the sound will diminish? Or do you turn up some pleasant music and close the windows and forget about it? Or possibly you just think it is the sound of a British Sunday and you forget about it and smile. There again perhaps you have murderous intentions for the damn noise every Sunday and it intrudes so much that you have to go somewhere else or make a noise yourself or go out for a walk.
Coping with Tinnitus
Many of these examples are coping strategies or maybe we just simply give it no importance. A client of mine had headaches EVERY morning. There was nothing physiologically wrong with him and the specialists concurred that the problem was psychological. I worked with him to stop LOOKING for the headache or if he found it to change it in specific ways that made it disappear. He got very good at doing that!
It is the same with tinnitus – many times we can either learn to diminish it’s importance or reduce it’s impact. I believe that whatever works is the best strategy. So although I cannot promise that tinnitus will go away for good – I know from clients that have worked with me that the coping strategies helps them to live with tinnitus in a new improved way.

What is Tinnitus?
“Tinnitus occurs through a disruption in the communication channel between your ear and the auditory cortex of your brain. When this happens, the nerves in the cortex can misfire spontaneously and begin to “chatter,” which results in the ringing noise tinnitus patients suffer from. This phenomenon is called neural synchronisation.”
“This phenomenon (waking up with loud noise) is known as the ‘Awakening Response.’ He states, “I have always felt it to be due to the role of the reticular formation in tinnitus perception. The reticular formation is a primitive structure in the brain stem. It’s a “vital sign monitor.” When you wake up, the RF checks to see whether or not you are alive! It looks for heartbeat, respirations, blood pressure, temperature – basic bodily signs. It does not care whether or not these signs are good or bad – just that they are present. And as far as the RF is concerned, tinnitus is part of “expected” body function in an individual suffering from severe intrusive tinnitus. So when you wake, your RF checks to see whether or not tinnitus is present. And if it doesn’t immediately find the tinnitus, the RF seeks it with a vengeance – – especially in the post-nap state, when there has been inadequate REM sleep and when, therefore, the RF is on already “high alert” that something might not be quite right. Theoretically – very theoretically – this RF hyperactivity in seeking tinnitus, which in a person with severe intrusive tinnitus it equates with life, results in temporarily markedly augmented tinnitus perception.”
Thanks to Greg for finding these!
